BEST CONSERVATIVE Publications/Links:
Here is a list of the Top 20 conservative news and opinion sites, pirated from/ranked by Liberty Nation, one of our favorite conservative sites. Liberty Nation states, “our Top 20 represents sites with a combination of talent, style, readability, analysis, and even thought provocation. Conservative readers are an intelligent group, where spin is not necessary.”
# 20 Newsbusters – NewsBusters.org
Exposing and combating liberal media bias. Need we say more?
#20 (new) Got-Freedom – Got-Freedom.org
Providing information on voting fraud and an opportunity to oppose it.
# 19 The Daily Wire – DailyWire.com
It is still not the easiest site to navigate, a fact noted in our 2019 rankings, but the Wire offers solid commentary and the occasional analysis piece that sheds light on unexplored areas. An excellent place to get the initial take on breaking news.
# 18 The Washington Times – WashingtonTimes.com
A tried and true lifeline for the few conservatives living in and around DC, WT has rightly been recognized as a stalwart of contrarian opinion and solid journalism. Its slogan says it all: Reliable reporting, the right opinion.
# 17 Democracy Now – DemocracyNow.org
MohaveGOP considers this a solid anti-Trump site that would not rank in the Top 50, let alone Top 20. A recent headline from Democracy Now proclaims, “Donald Trump, Superspreader-in-Chief, Endangers White House Staff.” Nonetheless, Liberty Nation says, “Easily the most surprising, many would say shocking, entry on the list, DN is a very left-leaning site. It’s certainly not a conservative site, but it is one that is read by conservatives. It has been praised for its wildly popular podcast featuring long-form interviews with leading figures, and as an honest and intelligent island of genuine journalism in a sea of anti-Trump media.”
# 16 The New American – TheNewAmerican.com
For those who particularly enjoy in-your-face condemnation of the left, this fresh and popular site covers the waterfront in exposing the deep crevices of leftist political thought and culture rot.
# 15 The Spectator – Spectator.org
A longtime leader in conservative thought, The Spectator offers up content that is at once strikingly original, thought-provoking, plain-spoken, and often satirical. Its new design is particularly user-friendly.
# 14 RT.com – RT.com
Though not, strictly speaking, a conservative outlet, RT has been hailed as a site where you can find stories that other sites haven’t covered on both domestic and international fronts. Given its location, it has predictably been assailed by the left as Russian propaganda, but our poll reveals that readers find RT generally upholds solid journalistic standards.
# 13 Reason – Reason.org
This libertarian site tied to the Reason Foundation covers politics and culture – and a good deal of comedy in their videos – through an ideologically consistent lens of individual liberty and the free market.
# 12 Washington Examiner – WashingtonExaminer.com
Liberty Nation says, “This reliably conservative site offers solid opinion and analysis of the issues plus the added benefit of ‘inside the beltway’ perspectives that are actually reliable.” MohaveGOP would rank this site at the bottom, as it frequently strays into liberal/fake news territory.
# 11 RealClearPolitics – RealClearPolitics.com
A unique and repeat entry on the list, RCP is a truly bipartisan site offering the best-written and most thought-provoking articles from both the right and left in virtually equal measure. “RCP’s reputation was built largely through their exhaustive election and polling information, including the much-cited RCP rolling average of polls,” Liberty Nation notes. We at MohaveGOP have come to believe most polls are really “push polls,” with a sampling selection and questions designed to “push” the results to the liberal side of the tracks.
# 10 PJ Media – PJMedia.com
For those who like to laugh as well as cry about politics, PJM is a casual, entertaining, and thought-provoking site that covers not only politics and culture but also delves into subjects such as faith and parenting. MohaveGOP’s editor checks PJ Media a couple of times a day.
# 9 Media Research Center – MRC.org
After 30 years of filling a crucial and previously unfilled role – documenting left-wing media bias – MRC has rightly become a giant in conservative circles. Their website offers skillful reporting and analysis of how the media characterizes and responds to the big stories of the day.
# 8 The Gateway Pundit – TheGatewayPundit.com
The newest entry on the list, GP is a brash, some would say bombastic, addition. It has earned a reputation for offering fresh angles on old news and unveiling stories hard, if not impossible, to find elsewhere.
# 7 Townhall – Townhall.com
A longtime favorite of conservatives, Townhall offers a wide variety of content from notable free-market figures and is thought to be a must for conservative news junkies seeking reliable coverage of the big issues. MohaveGOP really enjoys the editorial cartoons posted on Townhall.
# 6 The Daily Caller – DailyCaller.com
Daily Caller offers substantial opinion-based content but is known primarily for its superb investigative work conducted by their Daily Caller Foundation. DCF appears to be willing to take a deep dive where others fear to tread and have thus penetrated the so-called establishment media.
# 5 Judicial Watch – JudicialWatch.org
Best known for its aggressive pursuit of official wrongdoers, this is perhaps the best example of a site that does not necessarily attract the most viewers but offers exceptional content that our writers and readers value and therefore rate highly because of its unparalleled investigative work on government corruption.
Just short of its third anniversary, LN moves up one notch from 2019. It presents as a fully audio-visual site, expanding its offerings beyond articles to an extensive array of videos, podcasts, and a nationally syndicated radio show. Readers praise LN for its fresh and bold conservative, libertarian, and populist content. Liberty Nation offers original content not found elsewhere using an entertaining and informative writing style.
# 3 The Federalist – TheFederalist.com
A repeat finisher in our top 5, this site is designed for the reader who places logic over emotion, with some of the most intelligent and enlightening writing in the conservative realm. It dissects left-leaning news stories in an old-school style and stokes debate with its point/counterpoint arguments on religion, culture, and politics.
# 2 American Thinker – AmericanThinker.com
Finishing near the top again, AT is a consistent winner in the collective view of LN writers and readers. It is a triumph of substance over style, going well below the surface and hype to examine the heart of American politics and the players in the game, with no-holds-barred deep dives into interactive topics of national security, diplomacy, economic policy and more.
# 1 Breitbart – Breitbart.com
The new Trump-era giant in conservative/populist thought, Breitbart is the go-to site for voluminous coverage of all things political and cultural. Despite its puzzling layout, and blindly labeled as extreme by the left, it has built a well-earned reputation for its brash style and out-of-the-box conservative and libertarian thought.
Best Conservative News Aggregators (Collectors)
Since the famed Drudge Report fell off a cliff into a leftist abyss, conservatives have been on the lookout for a top-notch news aggregator that sorts the wheat from the chaff. In 2020, you have a range of options. We present MohaveGOP’s Four Best Conservative News Aggregators:
# 4 Citizen Free Press – CitizenFreePress.com
“CFP is a simple aggregator that lists all the latest news. No whistles or bells, but very functional and user-friendly,” says Liberty Nation, which ranks this site as #2. MohaveGOP finds the stark list of links interesting, but the selections sometimes puzzling.
# 3 Conservative News Direct – ConservativeNewsDirect.com
Easy to use and displaying only stories from top-rated websites, this aggregator is for those who only want the cream of the crop in terms of their news diet. Regularly updated, it’s a fantastic site for keeping up on the latest news.
# 2 WHATFINGER – Whatfinger.com
Liberty Nation says, “Going from strength to strength, WF is up-to-date, reliable and fast becoming the go-to alternative for those who feel Drudge doesn’t offer what it once did. With top stories, video aggregation, and a whole host of extras, WF meets pretty much all your needs.” LN ranks this site as #1.
# 1 Bongino Report – Bonginoreport.com
One of the newest aggregators to burst on the scene (perhaps explaining why Liberty Nation did not list it), the Bongino Report presents original reporting and a host of mainstream and off-stream news links and commentators such as Stephen Moore, Jenny Beth Martin, Sebastian Gorka and Dennis Prager.
